SHOF Chairman Nile Rodgers said in a statement:
"The first thing you need to know is it's about the song, the second thing you need to know is it's about the song, the third thing you need to know is it's about the song. That's true now more than ever but it has always been about the song so I'm very proud that in my first year as Chairman of the Songwriter's Hall of Fame that we are recognizing some of the culturally most important songwriters of all time. The 2019 slate of inductees represents diversity and unity across genres and gender, highlighting our dedicated mission to honor music creators who have enriched our lives. These are writers who in their time literally transformed music and helped make what's happening today possible."
